the picture clearly shows it to be 7 wine bottles long so its wingspan is around 96 inches

The plane is strictly a race plane. used in the Giant Scale Racing association. It probably has a modified Zenoah GT-80 twin. It was built and flown by an Icon of the R/C community in Wichita, Kansas. Loren Tregallas. He raced it under the name "Blind Mans Bluff" It is designed to be flown fast. That is his number on the tail 25. The Plane should be perfect as Loren was a MASTER builder. Retired from Beechcraft. He designed and flew RC mock ups of early Beech designs. That plane should be sent to a museum. Don't have any idea how a 3 blade prop got on it. I think that was an early design airplane will probably only go 150mph. The current USRA planes fly at 200 mph. Here is a link to the website.

IF you fly it you better be ready to go stupid fast and turn left. LOL

check out this video of racing in Arizona.

Big thank you Bob! You are right, this should be in a museum. Loren "Treg" Tregallas passed on March 2, of this year at 84 and was a known man in Aviation (Beechcraft) and Aviaton Modeling.
